About Features of Places / People & Places at Symbio

Give your students an action-packed day at Symbio Wildlife Park, with the chance to interact with a variety of animals and environments, while identifying ways in which people interact and care for places. Our experienced Rangers will take your students on an educational tour through the park, where they will be able to observe both native and exotic animals and the habitats in which they live, such as wetlands, water lagoons, bushland, desert, rainforest and beaches. Features such as the Reptile House will allow students to investigate the natural features of where cold-blooded animals live, while observing the monkey enclosures will allow them to learn how our rainforests and jungles are changing, and how we can care and preserve them. Students also have the opportunity to feed and interact with native kangaroos and wallabies in Symbio’s Walk-Through enclosure. By the end of the day, students will be able to describe the reasons places change, and the active role of citizens in caring and preserving our natural world.
